i agree with the 12/26/79 consensus also - havent pulled that show out in quite awhile


casper - you have caused that great, short, lyrical, little mid-jam from the Knick show stuck in my head now!!!

THANK YOU :) i have always loved that jam - so simple and beautiful. jerry hittin' those soft little high notes near the end of the jam has been known to bring a tear to my eyes

i second the 12/26/79 pick. jerry's solo in the middle of the song is pure joy.

For the best electric UJB, you must travel to France...

The intensity of the jams in this UJB makes it my #1:

10/12/84

not to mention the PITB reprise into the UJB reprise into the best Morning Dew ever.

Grendel's choice is my choice. I like my UJB mixed up with other tunes and reprises so this fits nicely. Also there is a gig from pauley Pavilion 1973 that has a Playin>UJB>Morning dew>UJB>Playin sandwich that comes in second.

Yes.

Can't say anything else about the Augusta Show. Most of you know how I feel about that one. First set is a smoker as well, the Stranger opener sets the stage for one special night.

I would also throw in the 6/8/80 Folsom Field, U of Colorado with an Uncle John's>Playin'>Uncle Johns to OPEN the show. There is a decent AUD here, but the search engine here is not working at the moment so I can't post a link. Worth seeking out though, really strong show.

Finally:

(In addition to the fine opening, the first set has an absolutely outstanding Jed, a tune I can usually do without. Jerry is just flying the entire set)

Update: The second set Eyes is killing me, my chair has been reduced to a pile of barely recognizable, twisted metal

top five: #1: 5/19/77...hands down. (On a Dick's Pick's.) #2: 2/27/94. Huge jam in the middle (hints of Supplication). #3: 9/27/94 #4: 6/17/91 #5: 3/27/95 (for the jam that comes out of it).
